Heya, basically got a Touchpad and it's missing the upper antenna which does the wifi, any ideas where to get a spare?

Will any do, I've looked and PSP wifi antennas are cheap.

Certainly I'm not an expert...

But if you use an antenna that is different from stock, wouldn't you be forced to compile in the proper drivers ala Meta-Doctor?
